Meet the Team
Danny Lipford is our fearless leader at Today’s Homeowner.

He loves his river cabin, spending time on the boat with friends and family, and is an avid practical joker.
Chelsea Lipford Wolf is our born and raised home enthusiast.
She made her television debut at the age of 11 when she pushed a shopping cart through the home center in the background of a Today’s Homeowner TV shoot. Today, you’ll find her co-hosting that same TV show with her dad, Danny, and “Uncle Allen.” Chelsea branched out in 2014 with her own original web series and blog “Checking In With Chelsea” featuring fun décor, craft and home improvement projects.
Hunter Ballard is our production whiz-kid. As the newest and youngest member of our cracker-jack team he is a versatile addition who shoots, edits and handles just about any other task we throw at him.

Jack Christiansen is our super sales sleuth. He manages advertising for our western territory and we suspect he has a photographic memory. Jack is a consummate professional and takes a personal interest in every Today’s Homeowner client. He is an avid Bears fan and would take you down over a plate of southern BBQ ribs.
Kathleen Crenshaw is our go-to girl. Need something shipped? Copier jammed? Can’t retrieve your voicemail? Kathleen’s on it.

With 18 years of directing TH on the books, he does the hands-down best impression of Danny.

Grace under pressure best describes our newest producer, Allison. Except, perhaps, when she’s behind the wheel. Of the production van, in particular.

Rocky Kurland is our Beast in the East… Eastern Territory, that is. As part of our sales team, Rocky is always on the lookout to help clients grow their business in partnership with Today’s Homeowner. Rocky is certainly an experienced teammate since he played football for the Auburn Tigers. War Eagle! He’s also the tallest member in our lineup at over 6 ½ feet, which is a great matchup for his Wonder-Woman dream-girl, Linda Carter.
Nathaniel Lewis is our ultimate behind-the-scenes aficionado. As our Production Assistant, Nate makes sure we always have exactly what we need, no matter the job. We count on him to man cameras, set up lighting, run audio, corral cables, drive the production van, and a million other things in between.
